Stolen cultural objects

By Dennis Turner, 22 January 2000

Hi everybody: Sorry to hear about the ongoing stealing and trashing of our ancient stuff. It really means so much to all of us.

Here on the Pacific Northwest Coast we still have the same problems. It's almost impossible to stop people from digging. You just have to keep trying.

My best suggestion is to hook up with an appropriate school with a good archeology program, find Taino students who are interested. Get them in touch with me or someone else who can guide them to the sources to learn how to protect themselves spiritually while engaging in this goulish business, and just start excavating and saving.

If we wait for discoveries and looters to sound the call we will always be a step behind, loosing precious things to the outsiders.
